Article 19.14: Third Party Comments and Automated Value Estimates

Section 14: Third Party Comments and Automated Value Estimates

Any IDX display controlled by a Member Participant that (a) allows third-parties to write comments or reviews about particular listings or displays a hyperlink to such comments or reviews in immediate conjunction with particular listings, or (b) displays an automated estimate of the market value of the listing (or hyperlink to such estimate); in immediate conjunction with the listing, shall disable or discontinue either or both of those features as to the seller’s listing at the request of the seller. The listing broker or agent shall communicate to the MLS that the seller has elected to have one or both of these features disabled or discontinued on all displays controlled by the Member Participant. Except for the foregoing and subject to the section below, a Member Participant’s IDX display may communicate the Member Participant’s professional judgment concerning any listing. Nothing shall prevent an IDX display from notifying its viewers that a particular feature has been disabled at the request of the seller. (Updated 11/2020)
